Ezekiel 19-22

The Facts (Chapter number: Verse)

19:1-5 - Israel Degraded "As for you, raised up a lamentation for the princes of Israel, and say: What a lioness was your mother among lions! She lay down among young lions, rearing her cubs. She raised up one of her clubs; he became a young lion, and he learned to catch prey; he devoured humans. The nations sounded alarm against him; he was caught in their pit; and they brought him with hooks to the land of Eygpt. When she saw that she was thwarted, that her hope was lost, she took another of her cubs and made him a young lion."
19:10-14 - "Your mother was like a vine in a vineyard transplanted by the water, fruitful and full of branches from abundant water. its strongest stem became a ruler's scepter; it towered aloft among the thick boughs; it stood out in its height with its mass of branches. But it was plucked up in fury, cast down to the ground; the eat wind dried it up; its fruit was stripped off, its strong stem was withered; the fire consumed it. Now it is transplanted into the wilderness, into a dry and thirsty land. And fire had gone out from its stem, has consumed its branches and fruit, so that there remains in it no strong stem, no scepter for ruling."

Ezekiel 20 - No mention of any women.

Ezekiel 21 - No mention of any women.

22:7 - "Father and mother are treated with contempt in you [Israel]; the alien residing within you suffers extortion; the orphan and the widow are wronged in you."
22:10-11 - "In you they uncover their fathers' nakedness; in you they violate women in their menstrual periods. One commits abomination with his neighbor's wife; another lewdly defiles his daughter-in-law; another in you defiles his sister, his father's daughter."
22:25 - "Its princes within it are like a roaring lion tearing the prey; they have devoured human lives; they have taken treasure and precious things, that have made many widows within it."

My Comments

Man, it's been a while since we've had mention of how DIRTY and UNCLEAN women are when they happen to be on the rag. Yep, keeping it classy there, Bible, as usual. Also been a while since we've had a real reminder that women that belong to men are strictly OFF LIMITS. But, as usual, women who are not owned by men are totally fair game (and if you manage to rape an unclaimed woman you might even be able to buy her from her father for cheap).

Yep, the Bible is TOTALLY not anti-woman. Nope, not one bit. -_-

Friday: More Ezekiel
